explore: Badenixe, Hamburg, Germany

I am a fan of architecture and structures that interact with their environment. Some of the most celebrated building designs fulfill this criteria from the Sydney Opera House to Fallingwater. The Badenixe is another structure that fits perfectly with its location. Found in Hamburg, Germany, the Badenixe, or “the bathing beauty” relaxes in the Alster Lake as if she … Continue reading

explore: Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao

It’s very rare that a museum’s architecture gets as much attention as the art it holds, but when you recruit famed architect Frank Gehry, it’s bound to happen. Located in Bilbao, Spain, this important piece of architecture is home to some of the art world’s most influential pieces such as Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning, … Continue reading

A Year in Review – Travel

The travel section is probably one of my favorite things to write about on this site. It’s the easiest, quickest, and cheapest way for me to escape the mundane nine to five that is my life. This year, I have featured travel posts from almost every continent in the world with the exception of Antarctica. … Continue reading

explore: Swarovski Crystal Worlds

I did not know until recently that the Swarovski crystal company’s headquarters doubled as a museum and after seeing pictures of the interior, it is everything I would imagine it to be and more. Located in Wattens, Austria, the museum has 14 underground “chambers of wonder” that feature the aesthetic of different artists and designers … Continue reading

explore: The Door to Hell

I don’t spend much time picturing what the entrance of hell looks like, but I imagine that the Door to Hell comes pretty close. Located at a natural gas field in Derweze, Turkmenistan, the Door to Hell gets its name from the natural gas fire that has been burning since it was lit in  1971 … Continue reading

explore: Pomerania, Poland

I am starting to get impatient with this weather. Even though the temperatures have dropped and it has unofficially become cardigan season, the leaves on the trees haven’t changed colors. It’s still summer. All I have now is the anticipation of this transition, which I fuel by looking at beautiful areas of the world that … Continue reading

explore: Cobh, Ireland

When it comes to Europe, the number of cities that literally and figuratively have a colorful history are endless. Cologne, Germany. Cinque Terre, Italy. Alesund, Norway. The list goes on and on. Another city that I have been reading about recently is Cobh, Ireland. When I think of Ireland, I think of rolling green hills for … Continue reading

explore: Giethoorn, Holland

,It’s funny to think about how far we have come to the world: you can be connected with anyone anywhere in the world within a matter of minutes. Yet, in Giethoorn, Holland, you might have to do a little extra work just to see your neighbor three houses down. The phrase, “the road less traveled” … Continue reading

Travel: Bruges, Belguim

Before the Colin Farrell movie, “In Bruges”, came out, I had never heard of the small town in Belgium. But after doing some research on the small Belgium town, I could instantly see the charm and why an entire movie would be set here. Bruges is rich in artisan history, which can be seen in … Continue reading

Explore: The Tunnel of Love

Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but the feeling of love can last all year round when exploring the Tunnel of Love. Located in Kleven, Ukraine, the Tunnel of Love is a beautiful passageway that is covered in greenery that provides service for a private train to transport wood to a local factory. The tunnel … Continue reading

Explore: Cologne, Germany

Germany is an extremely picturesque country with several historical sights and landmarks to see throughout.  One city that I am a personal fan of is Cologne. It is the 4th largest city in Germany and has a very interesting history. It was the most heavily bombed city during World War II, leaving about 95% of … Continue reading

Explore: Sintra, Portugal

Sintra, Portugal is a suburb of the capital city, Lisbon, that I hadn’t heard of until recently. But after seeing pictures of the Romantic architecture, castles, sweeping landscapes, and colorful buildings, I’m not surprised that this town is quickly becoming a popular tourist destination. Some places to check out would include the Regaleira Palace and Gardens, … Continue reading

Explore: Giola Lagoon, Greece

Greece is known for its picturesque views, ancient monuments, and its unique architecture, but one of its hidden secrets is this little lagoon located off of the Thassos Islands. This natural warm water pool gives attendees amazing views of the ocean. It apparently is a lot of work to get there, but based on the … Continue reading
